Building on the success of the first European Congress
on Health Tourism in 2008,
the 2009 Congress will focus on some of the leading issues facing key players in the European health tourism sector. More than 400 people are expected to attend representing all in the industry – facilitators, hospitals and healthcare providers, dentists and doctors, government representatives, health insurers, technology providers and investors.
The European Union’s plans for cross border healthcare and empowering patient choice could mean that Europe will lead the way in developing globalised health care system. The impact of these changes affect healthcare providers across Europe and the rest of the world; the 2009 Congress is the ideal opportunity for you to find out what these changes mean, how they might affect your business and the opportunities that to present.
Key issues include assessing and maintaining quality standards, patient safety, cost transparency, service development, the role of facilitators, and legal and insurance aspects.
The National Tourism Board of Hungary is supporting the Congress; Budapest is already a leading centre in the development and growth of health tourism in Europe, and is an ideal choice for a vibrant Congress in an attractive location.
The Congress offers an attractive mix of educational workshops, conference sessions, networking opportunities, and briefing sessions where delegates and visitors can present their business proposals and services to a forum of experts and investors.
